Mubarek humiliates the Pope of Hope

When you get a reputation for caving in during crises, this is what you get:
Here's the key quote from the interview with Mubarak:
"I told Obama: 'you don't understand the Egyptian culture and what would happen if I step down now'."
That won't go down well in the White House, since it contradicts the Obama administration's insistence that Obama laid down the law to Mubarak. Instead – if Mubarak is to be believed – there was some push back from the Egyptian president which for some reason the White House has kept to itself.
Make of that what you will. Chalk it up to a bit of comic relief for an otherwise bleak situation.
